Brick-on-Brick violence — Brutal brawl at football game under investigation
A student brawl at Saturday's Brick-Brick Memorial high school football game is under investigation by the school district according to Brick Patch.
Acting superintendent Dennis Filippone told Patch he is set to meet with police and principals at both schools today to assess the situation and hand out possible suspensions to students.
A Brick Township police spokesman confirmed to WOBM news that the incident is being investigated by the department's detectives bureau.
The fight began at half-time of a game the Green Dragons won handily 27-7.
In a video of the fight shared widely online, students are seen pushing and shoving each other. One who is topless is put into a headlock and pulled to the ground. Punches were being thrown by a student wearing a Boston Celtics Isiah Thomas jersey.
Brick Memorial student Tyler Geoffroy tweeted the video to Brick Township Mayor John Ducey over the weekend, pleading for action.
Townsquare Media calls to the Brick Township Public Schools superintendent seeking comment have not yet been returned.
